Congratulations! You’re engaged!! At this point you’ve probably picked a date and a venue! Maybe you’ve already chosen your wedding photographer and have had a discussion about doing an engagement session. Now, let’s talks about all the tips for using your engagement photos to put them to good use!
Six Tips For Using Your Engagement Photos
Save the Date Cards
This is probably the most common thing I see engaged couples do with their photos. Save the dates are personal cards for your wedding announcement. According to Brides, they are sent six to eight months before the wedding. Then, the formal wedding invitations are sent eight weeks before the wedding. Sending out save the dates are a great way to personalize your wedding and get everyone excited! I love to make custom cards for my couples!
A Wedding Website
Wedding websites are used to communicate with your guests. Many couples include personal photos and relationship tidbits to share with their guests. Other information commonly found on a wedding website includes the wedding date. the location, nearby hotels, maps of the area, and fun things to do at the destination location. Often, couples will also include their gift registry. Many couples make their wedding website on sites like The Knot and Wedding Wire.
A Wedding Guest Book
Create a custom book for your guests to sign. Sprinkle your book with pictures of the two of you! Be sure to leave plenty of space for your guests to write. These wedding guest books make great keepsakes. I personally love Artifact Uprising for making these books!
Most couples are engaged 1-1.5 years before the wedding. The chances are good you have at least one holiday to send out cards! Put those engagement photos to good use! Artifact Uprising is also an excellent resource for getting your holiday photos printed!
In this day and age, it would be a crime, not to mention social media! Use your photos any time you share personal updates about the two of you and the wedding!
Put Them On Display
That’s right! Print your engagement photos and display them in your home, at your office, and your WEDDING RECEPTION!! You can even make a coffee table book. Chances are you have a wedding album. A Coffee table book is a nice, but smaller, companion. You can find good quality consumer book design at Artifact Uprising too.
